Global Rate Card

Commission rate, based on percent of sale price, for items sold on eBay

Downloadable PDF versions of all rate cards are available here



Partners responsible for qualifying sales through with a coupon may receive a reduced commission.


A qualifying transaction occurs when an end user:

  • Makes a purchase within 24 hours after clicking your affiliate link for a “Buy It Now” item
  • Places a bid on an auction within 24 hours after clicking your affiliate link and then wins that auction within 10 days


For any qualifying transaction, you receive a percentage of the GMB for that purchase, based on the category-level commission rates shown below. You will only be paid once for each qualifying transaction.


Note: There are certain items and categories for which eBay Inc. earns low or no revenue. In those cases, partners will earn low or no commissions. These items and categories may include, but are not limited to gift cards, items sold by charities, and special promotional deals.


There may be exceptions to the rate card for certain partners based on their business model or other special circumstances.


This page is meant as a high-level summary. Full legal details of the rate card, qualifying transactions, and the affiliate partner program can be found in the Network Agreement.
